Tire/Can Carrier

Guys,
I finally got a round to building that tire/can carrier that I've been putting off.  I used Jpets basic design, but used 1.5x1.5. x1/8 steel tubing instead of angle.  I used the tail gate hooks as the top point and the rear cross member as the lower point instead of the drawbar.  Now, If one of you guys can help me with how to get those photos out of Photo bucket and onto this page I'll post some photos.  I think it looks pretty good, a local painter powder painted it for me.
Thanks for the help

I built a carrier to hold three gerry cans in 1973 for our new CJ5.  The carrier has been on three Jeeps and is now configured for one can, a high lift jack and the spare tire.
I think you will enjoy your creation for years.
Hope to see pictures.

Here you can see where I attached the can carrier and tire mount, I used the same tire carrier that was on the the side and bolted it to the carrier.

I know this looks like I'm jacking my postings up to get more of those little stars... it seems like the long way around the barn but If I don't have to use PB anymore I'm happy !

This is how I attached the carrier to the jeep, on the top I used the tailgate hooks attachment, on the bottom I bolted it to a couple of holes in the rear cross member.  These holes are located pretty close to the draw bar mount location.

Last one, any questions let me know.  In case anyone asks, GFT is Gun Flint Tavern, its a cool place to ride, the Gun flint Trail, and the tavern is OK too.
